Gate unit main featues:
NEVER ANTIFOUL AGAIN!
The Sea Pen gate unit represents our latest model and latest technology and utilizes a simplified design which provides a significant cost saving to our clients.
The Sea Pen gate unit is ideally suited for boats with single and double stern drives or outboards with a waterline length from 5m to 10m (33ft). It is available as a nose-in, reverse out system. Sea Pen technology always keeps the boat at water level and is an easy and safe way of mooring your boat dry. Importantly you can step on and off your boat at any time when it's moored in a Sea Pen.
Your boat will be kept in pristine condition and perform like brand new every time you take it out.
How does it work?
In less than 2 minutes your Sea Pen is down and you're ready to go!
Simply open the air valve and the hinged rear gate will sink away vertically and flood your Sea Pen with water. The skin and rope mat will fall away from the hull of the boat as the Sea Pen is flooded with water and will be well clear of the running gear of the boat. Within 2 minutes you are then able to exit the Sea Pen in reverse and nose in on your return.
Mooring your boat is easy and safe!
Just drive slowly into the water space and the frame of the Sea Pen will catch you on your return, making mooring your boat very easy regardless of the wind speed or direction. You'll never be blown off your dock again!
In 1 -2 minutes your Sea Pen is up around your boat!
To raise your Sea Pen connect the portable battery powered air blower (supplied) to the air valve connector and switch it on. This will blow air into rear gate and raise it back up around your boat. In less than 2 minutes the gate will be in the up position, then turn off the blower and shut the air valve. You have now created an isolated pool that the boat is floating in.
Just switch on the power and your Sea Pen will do the rest!
Simply switch on the 240v power to your automatic bilge pump to drain all the water out. The bilge pump has a sensor which will switch off automatically when the Sea Pen is dry. It turns on and off automatically as it detects water.
As the bilge pump is automatic you can leave your boat as soon as you have turned on the 240v power - the Sea Pen will do the rest.
As the water is pumped out, the skin and internal rope mat slowly shrink-wrap around the hull and running gear of your boat. The internal woven rope mat is crucial to the boat being dry. It creates a barrier between the hull of the boat and the outside skin of the pen allowing water to drain down into the centre bilge cavity of the pen and creating an air pocket that the boat is floating on. Your boat is now completely dry…floating on a layer of air! Your bilge pump will turn on and off automatically whenever water is detected.
Did you know?
You can walk on your Sea Pen!
The gate unit frame is built using 250mm diameter HDPE pipe which is very robust and buoyant. You are able to walk on the frame and have complete walk around access to every side of your vessel. This allows for easy cleaning and inspection to all areas of your boat.
The gate unit is supplied in a kit form and can be easily assembled and disassembled which reduces the expensive relocation costs incurred when using other boat lift systems. For short distance relocations the unit can be easily towed to a new site.
You can flush your motors in the Sea Pen
We recommend you wash your boat down and flush your motors with fresh water to remove salt build up on your boat.
Boats such as bowriders, ski boats, sports cruisers and day boats are all easily accommodated by the Sea Pen gate unit. Common brands of boats currently utilizing Sea Pen technology include Searay, Regal, Bayliner, Mustang, Cruisecraft, Cobalt, Haines, Boston Whaler, and Whittley.
